We all have heard about the benefits of meditating. Most of us even believe that we would feel better if we did. But for some reason we just don’t seem to get around to meditating.
What are your favorite reasons for not meditating?
Here are some popular ones from my students:
+ I don’t like anything new or different.
+ It’s boring.
+ It’s too complicated.
+ None of my friends do it.
+ I don’t like my pain, but it is an old friend. I would miss it.
+ I would have to deal with new abilities and/or successes.
+ I would lose some good topics for complaints.
+ I am addicted to drama.
+ I don’t have time.
+ I might have to speak up for myself.
+ I might have to change my attitudes and beliefs.
+ If I sit still I might not get started again.
+ I can’t let go of my tension, it’s what holds me together.
Do any of these sound familiar?
The best way to overcome our favorite excuses is to practice with a group of friends. I have a Teleclass coming up soon in June that will be a “user friendly” opportunity to make meditating a comfortable habit.
